Conservationists have been struggling to determine how to effectively fight off invasive species in our international ports for some time, but now we may finally see notable improvement thanks to a computational analysis of the most at-risk regions. According to a new study, if we focus on a small number of key ports in particular, invasions can be handily managed.
In a peculiar study of the season's effects on developing children, researchers discovered that children born in the winter months learn to crawl earlier in their lives than babies born in the Summer.
Sweet and sugary mangos are doing something strange for obese adults suffering from high blood sugar. According to a new study, eating about half a mango a day may actually lower blood sugar levels.
Researchers have recently discovered that over the last 150 years, the conversion of forests into cropland has actually resulted in a small amount of global cooling. These results underscore the overall complexity of the climate change issue.
Experts recently uncovered the fossil of a marine reptile whose remains had been gnawed on by long-gone scavengers of the ocean floor. This fossil is one of the first ancient parallels to modern "whale falls" and could help researchers better understand what corpse-eater ecosystems were like nearly 160 million years ago.
Stonehenge will never be the same again. That's what experts with the Stonehenge Hidden Landscapes Project are saying after discovering 17 previously unknown ritual monuments dating to the period when Stonehenge achieved its iconic shape.
Birth and death is happening constantly in the rings of Saturn, and researchers are only just now dragging these dramatic events under the public spotlight.
A new wasp species belonging to the Spasskia genus has been identified in China, expanding on the number of disturbingly parasitic wasps that can be found around the globe.
Researchers are claiming to have found a way to trigger tissue repair in wasting muscles in patients suffering from muscular dystrophy. This could potentially revolutionize how doctors treat such conditions, which currently lack ways to slow the progression of muscle damage.
Newborns are quite literally not created equal, boasting very different sizes depending on how and when they were birthed. However, researchers are now claiming that despite ethnicity, the size of their mother, or how tall or large they will grow further down the line, all babies should be born the same.
Just by looking at different peach pits, researchers believe they can trace the wild history of the domestic peach all to way to about 7,500 years ago. That at least according to a recent study in an international collaboration between US and Chinese researchers.
Not all tuberculosis-causing bacterium were created equal. Researchers have recently developed a new genetic "bar-coding" system to help professionals identify different strains of tuberculosis that affect patients in different ways.
Imagine every small cut, scrape, and scratch proving a potentially fatal wound, where the blood just never stops pouring. That's life every day for patients with serious hemophilia. However, now researchers believe they can treat this dangerous condition with the help of modified plant material.
Researchers have found a deadly strain of the avian influenza virus that has been sweeping through harbor seals may be able to spread to humans.
